Corn and Black Bean Salad

black bean and corn salad

It’s somehow already August, which means my baby will be one year old next month…I’m in denial, but also very excited about planning her first birthday party. I have a theme I’m pretty excited about and browsing ideas on Pinterest is rather addicting!

Today I have a simple side dish that is perfect for your next BBQ, picnic, or party. This Corn and Black Bean salad is also easy to whip up at a moment’s notice! Fresh corn and black beans are mixed with red onion, roasted red peppers, garlic, lime juice, and cumin to make a tasty salad. I think all the flavors complement each other perfectly. Time to get back to Pinterest!
